The results of working with Dr. Wagner were stunning... Dr. Wagner's insights into the nature and treatment of anxiety/OCD are truly the gold standard in the field.  We are forever grateful for her rescue of our son from the prison of his worries.

E.S., mother of 9 year-old boy with scrupulosity OCD

I suffered in silence with OCD for nearly 20 years.  I had worked with other therapists in the past, but no one seemed to be able to help me... Dr. Wagner immediately seemed to understand my anxiety and anguish, and even allowed me to help set the pace that I felt comfortable with while conquering my OCD. It hasn’t been easy, but with Dr. Wagner’s help and expertise, I have regained control of my life.

Dr. Wagner was an absolute Godsend to me and my 10 year-old son... All I wanted for my son was for him to be a happy kid without the pressures of his worries and he's finally at a point where he's just about there.

I feel liberated, and am tremendously grateful to have found Dr. Wagner. I believe that she has helped me to change my life, and continues to celebrate my new found mental freedom with me in our sessions.

An adult client with OCD

I want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart for working with me and all you've done! I was so frightened that I would have to be on medication and that I would never get better.  Working with you proved otherwise.

Adult with intrusive thoughts OCD

Dr. Wagner's techniques really work. My daughter was diagnosed at age 6 and her OCD used to control our family. She was terrified, angry, and violent, and we were miserable, to put it mildly.

Today, after working with Dr. Wagner and following her advice, my daughter is a joyful, flexible, young person with a bright future.

Grateful mother of a 10 year old girl with OCD

I met Dr. Wagner 6 years ago when my son was experiencing extreme symptoms of Tourette Syndrome and OCD. He was 7 years old and we had no idea what was going on. We can't even begin to express our gratitude to Dr. Wagner. Not only did Dr. Wagner help our son in so many ways; she helped our entire family.

When I think of Dr. Aureen Wagner, many things come to mind—brilliant, kind yet firm, game-changer, miracle worker. I could go on. Words are not enough... If your child is suffering, don’t waste one precious second. Call Dr. Wagner—she will make all the difference in the world.
